is exactly the same as it was pre9/11. it's exactly what osama bin laden said it was, and it's never changed. if you read their magazines, listen to their videos all their statements they point out. they sent their best bombmaker in the world to run part of their organization in algeria. it's the training ground to send fighters to different front all around the world. we have this sense we want to divide anything up and say today yemen is the most dangerous tomorrow algeria, then north africa. the fact is al qaeda's ideology is what's at the core. that's why they are called the base. the base is the uniting factor. that's where it comes electric. taking more terror and spreading ideology and that's that what's them more dangerous. >> good to see you. >>> a massive pipe explosion. it happened near erie. flames shot 300 feet in the air, could be seen for 80 miles. people forced out but most allowed back in this morning. crews shut off a natural gas line but flames expected to burn for several hours. no injuries reported. >>> former isn't of state hillary clinton is do

that osama bin laden thought had the best chance of really being powerful and causing a long-term threat. the information is vague. it is from intercepts. although it's not, thank goodness, the meta data from the u.s. because there's no evidence of their being contact with somebody in the u.s. to be captured in that metadata. there's a reference in what's been heard to the enemy, not specific, which leads people to think it's probably the u.s., but could also be western europe. finally, there's some indication that what makes this so scary is that the chatter is going back and forth in part between al qaeda in yemen and core al qaeda which is loosely based still in pakistan, the tribal areas, afghanistan, maybe even the top figure in al qaeda now with bin laden gone, amman zawahiri. this looks scarier than some of the chatter they pick up. >> put this in a perspective over the past ten years, let's say. it used to be we heard of the chatter going on around the clock. we had a discussion yesterday on "meet the press" about the about of al qaeda to still strike, compared to five, six, seve

and when we killed osama bin laden. > right. there is the 10th anniversary of september 11. and killing osama bin laden. this is pretty unusual, this but embassies>> are closed quietly and have been for the past couple of days quietly. this is just politics what they have done him a to convince the american public that they are on top of things. quite frankly, it is had a painful effect for our allies and not made us look very good worldwide. >> we have time for a couple of questions. >> is the microphone working? just elevate my voice. i apologize. that is better, ok. there is an article in national review a few weeks ago by a commentator who had done an economic analysis of these issues, which i thought was interesting. a slightly different perspective. his observation was that the of a life saved is about $20 million. if you compare the cost of our tower -- our counterterrorism establishment, comes up about $20 million per american life saved in these efforts. and that the nsa's program, by his calculation, was costing in the range of around $100 million per life saved. his point, ap

the global jihad foundation, obviously, shift more when osama bin laden took over and 9/11, but are we seeing now both disciples came together and sort of shared the same ideology? zawahiri, have we seen the shift towards a new approach to globallied had, or are we going to see -- global jihad? are we going to see more of cybersecurity issues, cyber wars that he's going to try and develop in al-qaeda, and now is it going to affect u.s. policy. >> want me? >> do you want to? >> yale, i'll go. we've -- yeah, i'll go. i think the big analytical mistake is to think that's not part of their global designs or doesn't assist them in waging global jihad. case in point in yemen, instituted a political platform under ansar al-sharia. and basically, this was there attempt to say that we can provide governance and basic services to you and that we can start, basically, you know, adopting parts of sort of, you know, the hezbollah or hamas model, we're going to ingrain ourselves in the committee and build up our own sort of governing model. the associated press recently came out with the head of the al-qae

people would say that president obama the very right to launch azeinab badawi race that killed osama bin laden. history and diplomacy co-exist. they interact with each other and they sometimes can complement each other. richard holbrooke, the late richard holbrooke, great american diplomat, i don't think he would have been able to secure the peace in bosnia had we not used force for six weeks to demonstrate to the bosnian-serb army that we were not going to permit them to continue to kill innocent muslims. and it was that use of force that achieved the cease-fire and drove them to the negotiating table where holbrook worked his magic and brought peace to bosnia after five years of war. so there are times when we have to rely on our military and we're fortunate, as all of you know, to have extraordinary young men and women in our military and the army and the navy and the air force, marines and the coast guard and the national guard.

their safety concerns in this case and look at what the president has done, he is responsible for killing osama bin laden, using ground strikes to decimate al qaeda, building on the policies of the bush administration regarding torture. host: judy is next, idaho, good morning. appreciate the call. caller: i have two things to say. the first is quick and for your producers. you read almost all twitter tweets these days and hardly any e-mails. it is very hard to express a complicated idea in less than 200 characters. i wish you would pay more attention to the e-mail. host: ok. caller: to the subject at hand, i take the present threat seriously. but not as seriously as they wouldn't if these agencies had not been a exaggerating and combing length the effectiveness of their programs and the thoroughness -- i think they have undermined their own credibility by doing so. i wish they would stop it so that we would know when something should be taken seriously and when it should not. host: judy, thank you for the call from idaho. at can join the conversation facebook as well. george says -- host: chris

. but i think is pretty clear what he was trying to say, which is anytime you can take osama bin laden off the board and kind of decimates the rest of their leadership, and by the way this administration has been extremely aggressive in the use of drone strikes in various places that we don't have boots on the ground. so i think we just have to continue to go after these people with the understanding it does not completely eliminate the threat. host: the disagreement over analyzing the threat and what it means -- this from the --nancial times" on friday terror alert returns al qaeda to center stage. u.s. claims of decimated enemy appear exaggerated. in that piece from friday's financial times. we are taking your calls and comments on this issue and the threat of al qaeda right now. our democratl on line from detroit, michigan. good morning, you were on with christopher hill. caller: good morning. withieve the whole thing the embassies and everything was a manufactured crisis because of the snowden release. once again, it is just like the terror alert. one native yellow, one day it is green

this or you are on the side of osama bin laden. but the media didn't expose this for really what it was at the time, and then you move on to the war in iraq, and, again, i -- i mean, i sound like a broken record, repeating some of the stuff that snowden is saying, but at the time, all of that talk about all of the lies we heard from the bush administration, it was the job at the people at that white house briefing to kick the tires and challenge the assertions, and get us the truth, and they never did. they never challenged weapons of mass destruction, to point out -- we didn't find out there weren't any until we invaded the country. >> yeah, it was too late. >> bill: everybody repeated this mushroom cloud crap from condy rice, as if it were true. and colin powell talked about this mobile missile launchers that they have -- he even had a drawing of them, that they could move ash the country, the whole thing. and didn't exist. and there were voices at the time, there were former un inspectors at the time, who were saying we haven't seen any evidence of weapons of mass destruction,
